Updated Guidelines for Training Package Developers. Australia's National Training Framework.
Australian National Training Authority, Melbourne.
This document contains the latest guidelines for developing nationally endorsed training packages for use in Australia's system of vocational education and training (VET). Discussed in section A are the following aspects of the context in which the training packages emerged: development of the National Training Framework and associated new recognition arrangements and User Choice; the training packages' relationship to New Apprenticeships; and the research required to establish the scope and market demand for products associated with training package development. Section B describes the scope, format, and quality requirements of the endorsed components of training packages: competency standards governing content, technical, and process quality; guidelines for assessor qualifications and training and design and conduct of assessments; and qualifications. Examined in section C are the types of material that could be included in the nonendorsed components of training packages (learning strategies, assessment resources, and professional development materials). In section D, the endorsement process is considered in relation to training packages' three endorsable components and reporting arrangements for other components, and the tendering arrangements for development of training package components are outlined. Concluding the document are guidelines for printing, final reproduction, and preparation of training packages for the National Training Information Service. (MN)
